14 Outrageous Lies Indian Moms Got Away With
Apparently, none of us are getting good husbands. EVER.
"I don't care how successful or pretty you are; no one's going to marry you if you can't cook."
"If you swing your legs under the table, your father will get fever."
"If you keep snapping those scissors without any reason, Papa and I will have a fight."
"If you cut your nails after dark, one or several of the following things will happen to you..."
"Things you can't do on a Saturday: Get a haircut, buy new shoes, start something new."
"If you don't behave yourself, we will send you to boarding school."
"This? This is not coke, beta. This is kadva Ayurvedic medicine!"
"Finish your food or the police will come and catch you!"
"If you drink milk every day, you can also become like Superman. His mummy told me, she also gives him Bournvita."
"Haye! Young girls shouldn't drink tea; it will make you dark."
"If you lie, your tongue will become black. I can check and come to know, so don't even try."
"If a boy even touches you, you will have a baby."
"Don't keep your hair open at night, you will get possessed by a chudail."
"When I was your age, I always listened to whatever my parents said. I always came first in school, never went out with friends and made dinner every night."
But the one time they never lie is when they tell you how much they love you.
And no matter what, they've always got your back.
